Board of Directors

Courtney Kanz - President

Courtney and her husband Ben moved to Eau Claire from Minneapolis in 2010 when Ben accepted a job in the area. She joined JLEC upon the recommendation of a friend as a great way to meet people. She is very appreciative of the many friendships she has made and also values the awareness the organization brings to the needs of the Eau Claire community along with providing an opportunity to make a difference.

Courtney earned her Bachelor of Science degree in finance from St. Cloud State University and MBA through the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Courtney also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation and has worked in various roles in the financial services industry. Upon the birth of their first child, she decided to become a full-time stay at home mom. She and her husband have two daughters, Ashlyn and Elise.

Originally from the Twin Cities, Sue and her husband Troy moved to Eau Claire in 2014 when Troy accepted a job in the area. Sue has one son (John) who lives in Rosemount, MN. Sue joined Junior League last year upon a friends recommendation.  Becoming involved in Junior League has fulfilled a desire to give back and be a part of the community.  Sue's background includes management roles in a Fortune 500 Company as well as several positions in sales and marketing. Sue enjoys reading, long walks and traveling. 

Amy Weiss - Treasurer
My husband and I moved back to Eau Claire from River Falls in April 2014. We both grew up here and have family in the area. We have two children: Calvin is five and Nora is two. We also have a German Shepherd dog and two cats. Our house is very noisy and busy! I love to read and drink wine. I used to lead a book club called Read Between the Wines. If anyone is interested, it would be great to start it up again in Eau Claire! This is my third year in Junior League. It has been a great way to meet fun women, and to find out about and serve the needs of our community.
